Purple Party Dress for Purple Awaremess

Added Feb 23, 2012

by Carrie Cochr...

Hollywood, Flori...






Custom dress created for a Purple themed fashion show raising awareness for Epilepsy in March. Cut from my original strapless bustier pattern only this time I fashioned a gathered skirt and added a mock ruffled bussell in the back for a whimsical party dress.

Material Notes

sequined lace, organza, lining, metallic cotton, silk metallic chiffon accented the waist.




Garment Type

    I love the shape of the bodice. Is it boned?

      Yes, it has five strips of plastic boning-about 2 yards worth and underwires in the cups
